eLibrary plus is developed to realise the ideal of a one-stop library service. It runs as an online platform to simplify the book loan system. Upon logging on their eClass intranet account, students can view their book loan status, order items, renew borrowed items and carry out other tasks. The library platform has built-in electronic reading resources (English and Chinese readers, videos, e-magazines, etc) for every school member to read without time constraints. In addition, eLibrary plus gathers data such as book reviews, click rates and loan records, etc. which are useful for promoting reading culture in the school.
